Pure Mathematics

Pure Mathematics is a research area within which you can focus your studies as part of our suite of Mathematics research programmes (MPhil, PhD).

The following specialisations are available within this research area:

  • Ordinary and partial differential equations
  • Functional analysis
  • Analytical and computational spectral theory
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Number theory and its applications
  • Mathematical physics
  • Operator algebras and Noncommutative Geometry
  • Algebraic geometry
  • Algebraic topology
  • K-theory
  • Combinatorics
  • Quantum field theory and statistical mechanics
  • Conformal field theory and vertex operator algebras

Three research networks have been coordinated from Cardiff:

  • the EU-TMR Network on Non-Commutative Geometry
  • the EPSRC Network on Algebraic Geometry, Boundary Conformal Field Theory and Non- Commutative Geometry
  • the EPSRC Network on Spectral Theory (jointly with a group from the School of Computer Science).
